record 12pb bench vise restoration
In this restoration, I am restoring a very old Record Steel bench Vise (Model 12PB) that has been mounted to my steel work bench for over 45 years. I inherited my late father-in-law’s tools, so many of them are in dire need of some love.
The restoration covers pretty much everything you would need to know in order to restore a vise but do not expect it to turn out like those highly polished vises that some do in their restoration videos. I wanted to make the vise look better but still be my every day vise, so I was not turning this one into a show piece, although I must admit, it did turn out great.
